Summary
"The Renaissance is perceived to be a secular movement, the majority of artworks were from ecclesiastical commissions. Because of the nature of basilica-plan churches, a parishioner's view was directed by diminishing parallel lines formed by walls of the structure. Appearing to converge upon a mutual point, this resulted in an artistic phenomenon known as the vanishing point"--Provided by publisher
